  1. What does it mean to burn calories? Calories are a measure of the energy your body takes in through food. Your body needs energy to do everything it does. But you need a lot more energy to dance than to watch TV! If you don’t use or “burn” off enough calories, then they turn into fat. I don’t want you worrying about getting fat or using your calories. Your goal should be to eat healthy and live healthy. Living healthy means not just sitting all day but getting up and moving. One way to do that is with chores. Yeah!

Week 10
L
  1. Figure out an estimate of how many calories you used yesterday being active. An estimate means a good guess. You don’t need to know the exact amount of time you spent doing things. If you didn’t do any of those things, how about sitting and reading, talking, sleeping, eating, chores? Use the calorie counter sheet that is closest to your weight (60 or 90 lbs): Calories burned 60 or Calories burned 90
  2. Remember your body uses calories just breathing, but the more you do the more energy (calories) you need.
M
  1. Figure out an estimate of how many calories you used yesterday being active. An estimate means a good guess. You don’t need to know the exact amount of time you spent doing things. You can choose “sitting” under occupation and the top one under that for doing your school work. Use the calorie counter sheet that is closest to your weight (60 or 90 lbs): Calories burned 60 or Calories burned 90
